As I recently posted, my colleagues and I at Institute for the Future hosted a conference late last year where we presented our new map, titled A Multiverse of Exploration: The Future of Science 2021. The map focuses on six big stories of science that we think will play out over the next decade: Decrypting the Brain, Hacking Space, Massively Multiplayer Data, Sea the Future, Strange Matter, and Engineered Evolution. As we were conducting the research that informed the map, I was constantly reminded of Arthur C. Clark's famous quote, "Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic." After all, we were exploring real science around invisibility cloaks, quantum consciousness, designer lifeforms -- I'd say those are pretty magical concepts. That's why we were delighted when Luigi Anzivino, scientific content developer at The Exploratorium and a prestidigitator, offered to speak at our conference about the intersection of magic and neuroscience! Check out his presentation above. More presentations to come from the IFTF Future of Science conference...
